    I'm really struggling with sociology especially since i'm halfway through year 2 and we've barely learnt much since Families and Households because for the past year we haven't had a set teacher as my original teacher became ill and left.

    I need help, big time, and it would be helpful if i got some tips on how to revise for this subject and key knowledge on things like what the different perspectives believe.

    I honestly don't know anything and i'm less than 4 months away from exams and the stress in unbelievable

    Yeah i do. I've got both AQA A Level Sociology Book 1 and Book 2.
    But because there's so much content in them, its hard to grasp the key information and i don't know how to properly revise from it

    My advice would be to condense down the textbooks into simpler notes. Much like the topic summaries at the end of each chapter. List the basic points, evidence and evaluation points simply.

    Websites like SlideShare and Quizlet are really useful in terms of grasping key information, and different theories perspectives.

    Revisesociology.com is very very useful. It provides a lot of detailed information but in simple terms. It also lists what each theory believes/it's perspective. I've added the link to this below

    Perhaps also check out GetRevising and YouTube for further help

    Essay plans are one of the best ways to prepare

    Also try not to become overwhelmed with the amount of information, it's definitely doable to learn and understand all the information before the exams! Just keep calm and condense all the information down into manageable chunks

    Best wishes 😀
